Va is a 65-year-old security guard from Cambodia. He has six children, fifteen grandchildren, and enjoys listening to Khmer music on the radio and relaxing at the local cafe with his friends.
Five months ago, Va developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him blurry vision, tearing, and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Va learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for one and a half hours seeking treatment. On September 09, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $211 procedure.
“I hope that after my surgery, I will be able to see clearly so I can return to my work.”
